[Solved] VPN issue

Installed Arch Linux some weeks ago, all good. Suddenly, despite previously working fine NordVPN refuses to connect to any servers, despite attempting the connection. I can only assume a recent update has caused this. Uninstalled and Reinstalled nordvpn-bin from the aur but still refuses. Internet is fine, all pings work correctly. Anyone else having problems?

Re: [Solved] VPN issue

AFAICT Nord VPN uses tun kernel module. Did you upgrade the kernel or anything else?
Can you attach the logs?

Thanks for your response. I simply did the usual yay - Syyu to update the system; however I believe you are correct and there was a kernel upgrade.

I have waited a couple of days for the updates to resolve the issue, but as this has not been the case I’ve scrapped my lovely hyprland arch installation and installed a Debian based system with xfce .

Shame, it doesn’t look anywhere near as good - but at least EVERYTHING works as it should. Thanks again for your patience and support.

OK.
Since I sin in this as well, I created this hook and script to notify me whenever the installed and running kernels are different.

PS
This issue will happen on other distros as well.

*sigh*
I am going to leave this as an exercise to the reader to research why this is a bad idea rather than explain it. Again.
